Re: One of last year's best seedlings

That's lovely, Jim! I can put you in touch with two floral rose growers who would faint over this. Koko Loko and Distant Drums are two of their most sought after cut flowers. Those shades are highly prized currently. Not that either is willing to PAY anything for them, but they can sell them like c...

Re: One of last year's best seedlings

You're welcome, Jim! Feeling kind of perverse using Grey Pearl? hehehe I definitely am, but I'm also using it with stronger growing Teas, Noisettes and Nessie, which should give it some "oomph"! If I can get Actii (Wichurana X Hugonis) to release some pollen, that will go on Grey Pearl, too. 1-72-1...

Re: One of last year's best seedlings

Angel Face will be Angel Face. Until chemical spraying is totally a thing of the past it will have its' fan base. Am I to assume that this is a nice low ,floriferous, (and healthy) floribunda? Very nice shade of lavender. Thank you! This is a low, floriferous, healthy, floribunda, so far. It looks ...

Re: One of last year's best seedlings

Thank you David, Phillip, and Kim. Phillip, this has been an unusually cool damp Spring here, and many normally healthy roses have been seriously disfigured by powdery mildew. This seedling has remained clean. The real test will be growing it in other climates. Knock Out is healthy in some locations...

One of last year's best seedlings

When I began hybridizing in 2000, one of my goals was to breed a better Angel Face. This seedling from last year has better health and vigor than Angel Face, and is very fragrant. The color isn't quite the same as Angel Face, but I like it. I took this pic today after the morning's drizzle ended and...

The pollen arrived today and I will begin using it tomorrow. Thank you! And I agree, if pollen is stored properly, it will be viable for a long time.

Re: A different kind of mini

One aspect of evolution and speciation is chromosome remodeling. Blocks of genes that are found on chromosome 1 of species A, may be located on chromosome 2 of species B. In second or later generations from the cross A x B may inherit duplicate genes ... 3 or 4 copies instead of the normal 2. If ge...

Re: A different kind of mini

Here's a pic of my dwarf with a normal-sized seedling from the same cross that opened its first bloom today. The dwarf is fragrant. The red single has no fragrance, and unlike the dwarf, it has prickles.

Re: A different kind of mini

Very pretty rose. I would call this a dwarf, not a mini. The distinction I see is that a mini has a proportional internode length, or perhaps even as proportionally longer than, a larger rose when considered in terms of leaflet size to internode length. A so-called climbing mini has longer internod...

A different kind of mini

This seedling is from the cross Midnight Blue x (Schoener's Nutkana x Coral Dawn). The parents aren't minis, and this seedling doesn't look like a normal mini. It is smaller (2 1/4" tall); less than half the height of mini seedlings the same age. It is branching and probably has as many leaves as ot...

Re: Purple + Yellow = ?

I wanted to get a brown climbing rose, that's why I studied lots of trees of ancestors of brown roses in HMF. Most of them had yellow and lilac/violet parents. So I started to cross apricot/orange/yellow roses with lilac/violet roses. Sometimes I really got brownish roses but also every other colou...

Re: Oddities for the season

Jim, Interestingly, a number of yrs ago I used Barbra Streisand in a few crosses (loved the fragrance) and had quite a number of seedlings that failed to produce a leaf even though the cotledon/leaf structure continued to thrive until I dumped them--way past any time line for leaves to appear. They...
